Just say the word, the sequel to Warner Bros and New Line Cinema’s hit superhero film, SHAZAM! will be striking back into theaters on April of 2022 with SHAZAM! 2. Zachary Levi is set to reprise his role as the big cheese, the adult version of Billy Batson. the film’s original screenplay writer Henry Gayden has been tapped to write the DC superhero movie’s sequel.
The first SHAZAM! made a shock at the box office for Levi, director David F. Sandberg and Peter Safran as it grossed $140 million domestically and $364 worldwide.
SHAZAM! starred Asher Angel as Billy Batson, an orphan who runs away from foster home to foster home in search of his mother whom he was separated from as a toddler. He is eventually bestowed magical superpowers unto him by a wizard (Djimon Hounsou), that transforms him into his full potential in adult form (Zachary Levi). He must battle Doctor Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong) and stop the Seven Deadly Sins from reeking havoc and destruction upon the world. Billy is also aided in this task by his foster brother, Freddy Freeman (Jack Dylan Grazer) and their other foster siblings.
It is not yet been reported if Asher, Strong, Grazer as well the other foster children or even their adult counterparts will be returning to the film.
Something else worth nothing, Warner Bros just the day before announced that BLACK ADAM starring Dwayne Johnson will be released in December of 2021. We have to wait and see if the end of that film will tie directly into this sequel.
Check out the panel our own resident super villain, Jay Washington moderated with Angel at FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention in April of this year.
The Marvel television that we have known for the past decade (yes, the same one that gave us the INHUMANS lol) is unfortunately shutting down.
This automatically leaves people to wonder what will happen to the upcoming four announced animated series headed over to Hulu, the upcoming HELSTROM as well as the last season of AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. will still be made. Everything will be folded into Marvel Studios.
“The decision has been made to complete Marvel TV projects that are currently in production, but not continue with any further development,” noted the TV division Tuesday. Layoffs are expected with the change in status for the once burgeoning small screen team, but not definite positions have been identified at present for the chop.
Things have been one blow after another for Marvel television. From the cancellation of the Marvel Shows at Netflix (DAREDEVIL, JESSICA JONES, LUKE CAGE, IRON FIST, THE PUNISHER), the scrapping of GHOST RIDER and the cancellations of CLOAK AND DAGGER as well as the recent announcement of the end of RUNAWAYS. The writing was seemingly already on the walls and everything has finally played out the way it should.
With the set of Marvel Studios original shows set to hit Disney plus soon it is going to be interesting to see what happens.
Today we were treated to the first trailer for WONDER WOMAN 1984 starring Gal Gadot reprising her role as the Amazonian princess, Diana Prince and is directed by Patty Jenkins.
The trailer takes us on a trip through 1984 and we get such a vintage and amazing feel. We are also introduce to Kristen Wiig’s, Barbara Ann Minerva who eventually will become Wonder Woman’s arch-nemesis as well as our first look at Pedro Pascal as Maxwell Lord. We are also treated to the return of Chris Pine as Steve Trevor.
Check out the trailer below and let it be known what you think.
Also check out the trailer reaction with the resident Super Villain, Jay Washington and the Jersey Jackass BC.
The resident super villain, Jay Washington is here with a preview to arguably the biggest crossover event ever, CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS on The CW. The epic team up will bring together the six lead heroes of the Arrowverse together for 5 shows (BLACK LIGHTNING, respectively will not be part of the crossover).
Jay goes into a brief breakdown of the Crisis on Infinite Earths story from the comics, its synopsis and how it will possibly be translated into television format. Check out the preview below and Jay may also drop a brief spoiler or two. Enjoy.
After making waves from many of the reports after this years San Diego Comic Con Hall H, Marvel Studios panel about the footage that was shown from the BLACK WIDOW film. Well now that footage and more has arrived in the form of the first official teaser trailer.
Throughout it we see Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johannson) revisiting things in her past i.e The Red Room and even visions of different Avengers. We also see Florence Pugh as Yelena, who we find out is Natasha’s sister. We also get a full look at David Harbour as Red Guardian (the Russian equivalent to Captain America). This seems to be an amazing kickoff to Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
There is so much action that you need to witness the trailer yourself.
BLACK WIDOW hits theater on May 1, 2020. Also Check out our own resident super villain, Jay Washington’s trailer reaction to the trailer…yes it’s a thing.
What is set to be arguably the biggest crossover of all time is almost upon us. CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS will bring together iconic amd legendary characters from across the DC universe tv, film and even animated spectrum on the CW.
Falling within the Arrowverse, the crossover will span across 5 of the 6 superhero shows, ARROW, THE FLASH, BATWOMAN, SUPERGIRL & DC LEGENDS OF TOMORROW. Black Lightning will also be involved yet his respective show will not be included in the crossover.
The CW just released a new poster to promote the event and it is amazing. Check it out below.
In the middle of the poster in the midst of Lamonica Garrett as The Monitor, you’ll notice it says “its the end….of the worlds”. In the comics the giant event lead to the erasure of all of the other worlds leaving all of the heroes of one Earth. Could that also be the fate of the Arrowverse after?.
There had been much talk about the future of STARGIRL, would it actually air on the DC Universe streaming site or possibly be scrapped altogether. Well we now have an answer and it is an interesting one.
According to DEADLINE, STARGIRL will be the first original DC Universe series to air on linear television. The upcoming superhero drama will play on THE CW after its debut on the DC streaming platform.
Here’s a little more clarity on how this will work. The CW will broadcast each episode in primetime the day after it premieres on the DC Universe streaming service. STARGIRL is set to debut sometime during the second quarter of 2020. A premiere date will be announced later, along with scheduling information which night the show will air on the CW.
With both BATWOMAN and SUPERGIRL heading towards their ends of season around this time this may be the perfect place to fill the void on the network.
STARGIRL stars Brec Bassinger as Coutrney Whitmore aka Stargirl along with Joel McHale, Luke Wilson, Amy Smart, Trae Romano, Cameron Gellman, Yvette Monreal, Anjelika Washington, Meg DeLacy, Neil Jackson, Jake Austin Walker, Christopher James Baker and Hunter Sansone.
